« Isaiah 12 | Isaiah 13 | Isaiah 14 »
4 The sound of a tumult is on the mountainsas of a great multitude!The sound of an uproar of kingdoms,of nations gathering together!The Lord of hosts is musteringa host for battle.
5 They come from a distant land,from the end of the heavens,the Lord and the weapons of his indignation,to destroy the whole land.
6 Wail, for the day of the Lord is near;as destruction from the Almighty it will come!
7 Therefore all hands will be feeble,and every human heart will melt.
8 They will be dismayed:pangs and agony will seize them;they will be in anguish like a woman in labor.They will look aghast at one another;their faces will be aflame.
9 Behold, the day of the Lord comes,cruel, with wrath and fierce anger,to make the land a desolationand to destroy its sinners from it.
10 For the stars of the heavens and their constellationswill not give their light;the sun will be dark at its rising,and the moon will not shed its light.
11 I will punish the world for its evil,and the wicked for their iniquity;I will put an end to the pomp of the arrogant,and lay low the pompous pride of the ruthless.
12 I will make people more rare than fine gold,and mankind than the gold of Ophir.
13 Therefore I will make the heavens tremble,and the earth will be shaken out of its place,at the wrath of the Lord of hostsin the day of his fierce anger.
